That's a problem, they are stuck.  They can't standardize on one
platform because it kills every other platform.

If someone wants to write for their Apple IIe, they shouldn't be
disqualified because it isn't x86 hardware.  "microcomputer" != "x86".

Please bring a Cray, and please bring your own personal self.

I'll show up on whatever I can get, but I'll probably still be
single-processor, so that cuts my options by a lot.

I take the WCCC a little less seriously, since it is a shorter event,
